Ultrasone Pro 750 vs. Pro 900?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I keep reading that the 900's are a bit more laid back and have tighter bass but I am wondering if anyone here has any experience with them and if they are worth the price differential?

I am not an audiphile (at least not yet:)) but I will be using the phones for BF3 and electronic, pop, and metal music, in FLAC format.

I have heard both and I prefer the Pro 900 a lot. That said, the price difference right now is fairly ridiculous..the Pro 900 are normally much cheaper than what they are being sold for right now around the net.

I have heard good things about both. Figures that the guy with the Skrillex avatar prefers the 900's.rolleyes.gif

Not discounting them but that just tickled me a little bit.

Edit: Oops, didn't mean to sound like a jerk. I like Skrillex too. biggrin.gif

Well Amazon has been trolling me hard because the price seems to change on a PER SECOND basis. It was like $349 for about 30 seconds last night and I chickend out on pulling the trigger. A few moments later, the priced shot up like a rocket. I was like ***!

I have PRO=900s and they are bass monsters! Visceral and aggressive. Great headphone! Don't require too much power to drive also.

They are good for gaming as they have excellent positional qualities and soundstage for a closed headphones.

The funny thing about the Pro900s is that the audio spectrum sounds distinct. That is, although the bass is blood pounding, it doesnt' interfere with with the mids and highs. The first time you put them on you get a *** experience. It just sounds so different from any other can. I think this explains the polar response people have toward this can.

Laid back? I don't think that could be said about the 900s.

I've got the Pro 750's. They have good, punchy bass - but not tons of it. They're probably more neutral than the Pro 900's as the 900's are often described as bass monsters. I wouldn't consider the pro 750's bass monsters, but very well balanced (what most people consider balanced is, to me, usually bass light though).

I'm poor so I would go with the PRO 750s. You really shouldn't be disappointed either way.
